Things I Am Loving Lately!

Happy Friday! Unfortunately today is my Monday. I will be working the next three days (or nights to be exact). Before I head out to work, I wanted to just share some of the things I am absolutely loving. It's been awhile since I've blogged about this, but it will give you a sneak peek into my personal life. Hope you have a great weekend!

OATMEAL: I go in phases with my love for oatmeal. I started to like them again this week. Next week, who knows! When we got back from out of town I had absolutely nothing to eat in the fridge. So I looked at my pantry and found my oatmeal. It was super fast and easy to make. Since then I have gone grocery shopping so now I eat it with some fruits. Delish!

GRATITUDE JOURNAL: I am still going strong on my gratitude journal! I love how it already has changed the way I see different things. I am trying to think happy in order to be happy. This year I am really hoping I stick to this.  

SAN DIEGO: I am so blessed to live here and have such amazing running views. El Nino hit us pretty big this past week, so I was couped up inside for much of the week. Today I finally got out and hit the pavement by the bay. I can't express how much I love this city and so glad I was able to move back home.

MY HOME GYM: If you read my last post, then you know I am starting my own home gym. No gym membership for me! Since it was raining pretty hard over here, I was blessed to go to the comfort of my garage and still get a good workout in. My treadmill has been great and I am loving my new weight set. However, I am starting to see how out of shape I am. I did a leg workout a few days ago and I am still hobbling around. Right now I am really regretting having a split level home. 

TEA TIME: I don't drink coffee, so tea is my go to for caffeine. Right now I am loving this specific tea. It tastes delicious and gives me a boost of energy (especially while working nights). I found this tea at Target but they also sell it at grocery stores. I haven't checked if it is on Amazon yet, but I wouldn't be surprised. Now a days you can pretty much get everything you need there.

KEVITA: I have been really trying to control some stomach issues I have been dealing with. I am trying to avoid dairy as much as possible since it causes a lot of bloating for me. I haven't stopped eating cheese but have really limited my intake. I saw this juice at the grocery store and bought it since it was on sale. I loved it! It is a probiotic drink and have read some really good reviews on it. Even Hungry Runner Girl talked about it recently. 

RED LIPS: My sister-n-law gave me some free Sephora stuff. She is like this VIP member and gets a ton of freebies. I definitely scored with this red lipstick. I didn't think I could pull it off, but I got a lot of compliments. Even the hubby loved it so it was a win/win.

ORIGINS EYE CREAM: I received a sample of this GinZing eye cream and had to purchase it after my sample was done. I have been using it for a few months now and I love it. I purchased it from Sephora but I am pretty sure you can also find it at Ulta but don't quote me on that. The bottle is tiny but you really don't use that much. Just a little dab under the eye and voila!

    And I love oatmeal too. I add in PB and it tastes so yummy!

  6. I wish I could pull off red lipstick like you do! I can distinctly remember one time wearing it in college and my roommate asked if I had cut my that was the end of that.

  7. You are rocking that red lip girl! I go through phases with oatmeal too, but it's cold here so it's become my go to.

  8. It's very great to see your post!I like it .I'm looking forward to you in the next

    post.Thank you .There is a free date recovery to you.

  9. It's really good to have your own gym at home, as you get to do your exercise anytime and don't have to worry about the weather conditions. It's a good investment as all your family members get benefited out of the gym equipment. Even while doing the exercise at home, you can also make it more attractive by adding good sound systems, a nice wall graffiti, and the most important thing is the selection of the gym floor for the equipment that is space compatible and you can use them without any risk to your body.
